The photo challenge this week was a photo of “today”, taken on the day you read the challenge. I had planned to do a few shots, you know a little photo essay on how I spent a rainy Sunday. In the end Princess Child and I snapped this on our way to the video shop and … well that was the sum total of our effort.
As the rain pelted down we watched videos and I cooked – the four-hour spaghetti bolognese cooked too fast (gotta remember to turn heat DOWN) and needed a bit more “tomato” in it but it went on to feed us for two nights during the week (first as spaghetti bol and then as a meat pie). I also made lamb tagine which was delicious, and according to Mr Shambles even better the next day for lunch. Both recipes were from Love & Hunger.
We watched the second Sherlock Holmes movie, but I got a bit distracted by the I-pad. Ever heard a favourite movie star interviewed and felt a little disappointed? I feel that way about Robert Downey Jnr, saw him on Graham Norton and, maybe he was having a bad night, but he wasn’t what I expected.
The fireplace grouting is almost finished, except we ran out with a mere few centimetres to go, sigh, so back to the shop to get some more.
And that was pretty much our lazy, rainy Sunday. Now we are looking forward to a long weekend (four days for me seeing as I don’t work Fridays). Yayy.
